Standard Payroll Service

A fully comprehensive payroll service for your nanny.

Nanny with children
When you take on a Nanny, you become an employer and have to calculate tax and National Insurance for your employee, with all the legal and financial responsibilities that entails.

Whilst not particularly difficult, these are time-consuming and bureaucratic, and unless you are familiar with the details of PAYE, offer many opportunities to make mistakes. HM Revenue and Customs applies penalties even to inexperienced employers who are late with their paperwork and payments.

Why not let us take the headaches out of paying your Nanny, with our low-cost payroll management service?

For a small annual fee (only £138, for monthly pay or £234 for weekly pay, including VAT) you will be able to avoid the many pitfalls associated with running your own PAYE scheme and will be able to rest assured that you are complying fully with all relevant legislation. Your Nanny can also be assured that their pay and tax are being properly and promptly calculated and dealt with.

If you currently operate your own payroll or are with another payroll agency you can transfer across to our service at any time. You don’t have to wait until the start of a new tax-year as it’s possible to move everything across mid-year. In addition to our normal registration documents we would just need you to provide us with a P11 working sheet which your current provider should be able to supply you with.

If you’re planning on paying your nanny using childcare vouchers you’ll need her to be registered with Ofsted.  As part of this she’ll need to have liability insurance and will also need to have a valid DBS check.  We do have a liability policy available for nannies which would be sufficient and we can also process the DBS check for you as an additional service.

Our Standard Payroll service includes:

Premium Payroll Service

Includes tailored contracts, just for you.

Nanny signing contract
With the Premium payroll service we include everything listed above for the Standard payroll service as well as a comprehensive contract tailoring service.

We will establish your exact requirements and produce a contract of employment to review.  We can accommodate everything from basic full-time employment through to complicated nannyshares and annualised agreements.

If adjustments are required we will advise on relevant employment laws and issue revised drafts until you are happy and ready to sign with your employee.  If a new contract is required for a replacement employee this is included at no extra cost and contract amendments or side letters are available on request during the employment.

Premier Payroll Service

Our most comprehensive payroll package

Our Premier payroll service includes all the benefits of the Premium service and additionally includes payment handling for both employee payments and payments of tax and NI to HMRC.

On a monthly basis we would take a payment from you by Direct Debit, covering the net payment for the employee, the tax and NI and our subscription fee.  We would then arrange for the employee to be paid and sent a payslip directly as well as paying HMRC directly on your behalf.

Nanny employedWith our Premier service all you have to do is keep us updated with any changes to your nanny’s circumstances or pay arrangements (e.g. notifying us of overtime, changes to the working pattern or the end of the employment).  We’ll handle everything else for you.

This is only available where the employee is paid on a monthly basis and can be further enhanced with our Premier Pensions service where we also handle all of the pension administration and payments on your behalf.
